Vermiculite Grades - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



Photo Galleries are back! Instructions below.

Dear forum users,
Thank you for your patience with the Photo galleries. We've got your galleries online!
We have finished writing a custom script to migrate the PhotoPlog to vBulletin5’s albums.

Unfortunately V-Bulletin killed the "Photoplogs" in their software upgrade which was unforeseen and we're the first development group to have written a script for getting the galleries back... that said, it took some time to reverse engineer the code and get the albums to move over seamlessly!

Forum users will be able to access their “PhotoPlog” images through their user profile page by clicking on the “Media” tab.
They will also be able to browse other albums by going to the albums page. (On the forum site, there is a link in the black bar beside “Forums” to the albums.)

In order for users to create an album please follow the steps below.
1) Go to user profile page and click “Media”
2) Click Add Photos
3) Enter Photo Gallery Title in the first field
4) Click Upload or Select from Photo Album to add photos
5) Click Post
6) Once posted, the album will be created as a “Topic” on the albums page for the public to see. The topic title will be the “Photo Gallery Title” they created before uploading their photos.

To create this migration path we used vBulletin5’s default album structure. Unfortunately, it won’t work like the “PhotoPlog” but is an album/gallery component on the forum now.

  • Vermiculite Grades

    I'm gathering some materials and have found some Vermiculite that is A4 course grade. I don't think this is what I want but just wanted to verify. I tried to search for just A4 and got no results and when I search for vermiculite A4 I got pages upon pages and have not been able to find out yet. Thanks for your help.

    we use #3 for our customers. I think it comes in 4 grades and depends on the "exfoliation" to what grade it becomes. #1 is the smallest, with #4 being the largest.

      Regarding searching the forum, it disregards small words (like A4) in its search parameters - so if you need to search for small words, do a Google search specifying the site like this:

      a4 vermiculite site:fornobravo.com

      However, in this case you'll just turn up your post and another unrelated one.

        the density of the finer vermiculite seems to be the same as the coarse stuff ie the bag seems to feel about as heavy. The finer stuff seems to hold together better, so I'm continuing to prefer it.

          In the New England area vermiculite has much coarser, chunkier and larger paticle size than the Perlite which is a fine, small uniform size. They are both the same composition by the same manufacturer & distributor sold primarily for masonary insulation. The tech data sheets indicate the finer Perlite is 5% better for insulation presumably because of smaller pore space and more uniform filling of spaces. However this may not correlate with a slab application where the mixture is mixed with portland. The chunkier vermiculite alone makes a lumpier courser mixture especially for screeding. A mixture of the two sizes is smoother. The fine perlite alone makes a very smooth mix for final screeding. Glosta
